I was accused of approving of racism for putting that line in. I don't, and I'd like to clarify that I think that it's of course an awful thing to say. A dumb line from an ignorant child. I do admit that it was probably a poor choice to write it though.

@H0lyhandgrenade: People don't seem to get that a character's views don't always reflect the author's views. I didn't see it as racism on your part at all.

Oh I thought darkies referred to beings from the dark world or something.

It's a realistic thing for someone to say in a war context, especially a child. But yeah, probably wise to have this note to clarify that you don't approve.

I'm black and I didn't really see it as offensive. Just like shadow monsters or something

The note was a good call considering the only people seem to be white and that the only time a minority is mentioned is in the context of a war and hostile takeover. So it would be easy to have a misunderstanding of the author hadn't said anything otherwise
